If you are a fan of big phones and prepaid carriers, you will love what you are about to read. TmoNews has received a tip claiming that the Samsung Galaxy Mega is slowly making its way to Metro PCS. The news comes accompanied by a photo picturing the phone with Metro PCS branded software. The source of the tip believes that the device might go on sale before the start of the holiday season.

Samsung Galaxy Mega for Metro PCS
The Samsung Galaxy Mega for Metro PCS most likely will not be different in any way from the version offered by AT&T and US Cellular. It means that you will get a massive 6.3-inch 720p display at 233 ppi along with a dual-core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor paired with 1.5 GB of RAM.
For the time being we are going to assume, that both 8 GB and 16 GB storage option will be available from Metro PCS. Either way, the memory is expandable via microSD card up to 64 GB.
The Galaxy Mega packs an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, auto focus and 1080p video capture. It is also equipped with a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera for video chatting.
Connectivity features include LTE, HSDPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. To power this huge phone you need a healthy dose of juice. No worrier, the 3,200 mAh battery should get you through the day with no problem, providing up to 18 hours of talk time or up to 19 days of standby time.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega currently runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, but might be getting an update to Android 4.3 in the near future.
